New Keynote: Carousel of Progress

New Keynote: Carousel of Progress

On September 1, 2021 Ideaplatz founder Cheryl Platz debuted her first entirely new keynote in 3 years: The Carousel of Progress: Adapting to a (Post) Pandemic World.


Human progress leaps forward thanks to inciting incidents. Political, cultural, environmental… and sometimes pandemics like the Spanish Flu or polio. We now find ourselves facing another inciting incident: the COVID-19 pandemic. Progress is inevitable. Customer expectations and needs have changed drastically in the last 18 months. But what kind of progress, and how can you adapt? Your customers will expect a more hands-free technology environment, and will expect more flexible technology that adapts to their schedules and needs. You’ll need to understand how to approach multi-modal design: from the spectrum of multi modality to transitions and interruptions. Multimodality expert Cheryl Platz will introduce you to the fundamentals you’ll need to ride the Carousel of Progress to its next transformative stop.

The keynote was first delivered to an audience at CHIFOO (Computer Human Interaction Forum of Oregon) to an enthusiastic response. Recording is available to CHIFOO members.
